The Railway

I love trains. Thankfully, the hubbinator does as well, and one of the things we’ve always wanted to do was ride the Verde Canyon Railway during the Fall, to you know, see those colors everyone else always brags about.

Right after lunch, we headed for the depot and waited our turn to board. The carriage had been restored and since it was first class, had comfy seats that were more like couches bracketing coffee tables.

Attached to the car was a second open air, view car that offered better views than those available inside. We were in the third to the last car heading out but third from the engines on the return trip. The views of the mesas were gorgeous but I admit a fondness for the canyons cut by the Verde River seen in the third picture below.


I’ll admit that on the four hour journey, I sketched out a story idea of what would happen if the train pulled into the station after zombies took over.

But my brain squirreled as we went through a tunnel and sat in near total darkness. After all, what better place to have a murder:D. I may have been under the influence of the trailers for the new Orient Express movie.

Until next time!
